Laparoscopic Boari Flap ureteral reimplantation.

CONCLUSIONS: Laparoscopic Boari flap ureteral reimplantation is an affective technique for ureteral reconstruction, safe and reproducible, reserved for cases of ureteral pathology in which the distance to bridge between the bladder and the ureteral stump is long.

Fifty percent Dextrose solution (D50) can be used to evaluate ureteral patency at time of laparoscopic hysterectomy. A previously published study found an increased risk of urinary tract infection (UTI) after cystoscopy with 10% dextrose solution following pelvic reconstruction or anti-incontinence surgery. The purpose of this study was to compare the rate of UTI and lower urinary tract (LUT) injury detection in different population –younger women who have undergone intraoperative cystoscopy with 50% dextrose solution or normal saline (NS) immediately following benign laparoscopic hysterectomy.

AbstractObjectiveTo compare the efficacy and safety of robot-assisted laparoscopic ureteral reimplantation (RALUR) and open ureteral reimplantation (OUR) in treating primary pediatric vesicoureteral reflux (VUR) based on published literature.MethodsA comprehensive literature search of PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, CBM, CNKI and VIP databases was conducted to identify studies comparing the outcomes of RALUR with OUR for treating primary pediatric VUR. The last search was in January 2017. Summarized mean differences (MDs) or odds ratios (ORs) with 95% confidence intervals (CIs) were used to assess the differences in outc...

Acquiring surgical skills requires regular practice. Medical evidence supports that these skills can be learned outside the operating room (OR). The aim of the current study was to describe the first laparoscopic simulator for ureteral reimplantation (LAP-SPUR) following Lich- Gregoir technique.

Conclusions: As surgeon comfort and experience with robotic assisted surgery grows, robotic surgery can successfully be applied to less frequently performed procedures. Here we successfully performed a robotic assisted radical cystoprostatectomy with intracorporeal ileal conduit urinary diversion for a renal transplant recipient.

ABSTRACT A 41-year-old male presented at Emergency Department (ED) with right flank pain associated with hematuria for 3 days. Patient had a previous history of nephrolithiasis. The physical examination and blood tests were normal. Urine analyses showed haematuria> 1.000.000/ μ L. After clinical evaluation, a computer tomography (CT) showed right ureteral dilatation caused by a 5 mm proximal stone and a distal intraluminal mass of 8 cm in length. In this setting, an ureteroscopic biopsy was performed and revealed a large polypoid lesion histologically suggestive of fibroepithelial polyp. Due to technical difficulties...

Abstract IntroductionTo evaluate the accuracy of transvaginal sonography for preoperative detection of bladder endometriosis and surgical outcomes regarding fertility and pain symptoms of women with urinary tract endometriosis. Material and methodsRetrospective cohort study of consecutive patients with urinary tract endometriosis undergoing laparoscopic partial cystectomy and/or ureterolysis/decompression, ureteric resection and end‐to‐end anastomosis or ureteroneocystostomy for ureteral stenosis and hydronephrosis. ResultsOf 207 patients with deep infiltrating endometriosis, 50 exhibited urinary tract endometriosis, c...

ConclusionsThe nonspecific symptoms of ureteral endometriosis can result in incorrect diagnosis, with renal damage as a result of prolonged hydronephrosis. A high index of suspicion and use of imaging modalities enable earlier diagnosis and preservation of renal function.
